Radware's DefensePro Chosen to Protect Multiple Datacenters in the United States
MAHWAH, N.J. — Radware® (Nasdaq:RDWR), a leading provider of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, announced a national financial services company awarded Radware with a multi-million dollar contact for its DefensePro®, a real-time, behavioral based attack mitigation device.
DefensePro employs multiple detection mitigation modules including adaptive behavioral analysis and challenge response technologies in addition to signature detection. This enables the attack mitigation device to detect and mitigate emerging network attacks in real time such as zero-minute attacks, DoS/DDoS attacks and application misuse attacks ? all without the need for human intervention and without blocking legitimate user traffic.
Cyber-attacks have become extremely pervasive within the banking industry and have plagued many of the biggest banks with Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and data breaches. The west-coast based financial institution reviewed the anti-DDoS solutions of several security vendors, eventually selecting Radware to protect its multiple data centers around the U.S., especially against SSL-based attacks.
Due to the evasive and encrypted nature of an SSL-based attack that leaves front line network security tools blind to the attack, the financial services company also incorporated Radware's Alteon®NG in order to decrypt incoming traffic and route it to the DefensePro. The AlteonNG provides advanced, end-to-end local and global load balancing capabilities for all web, cloud and mobile based applications. Both DefensePro and AlteonNG are core products of Radware's Attack Mitigation System (AMS).
"Financial institutions are on the front-lines of cyber-attacks and detecting and mitigating these attacks with a high degree of quality and in real-time is critical," says Carl Herberger, vice president of security solutions for Radware. "Realizing this, attackers are beginning to encrypt their attacks with SSL to complicate a bank's protection capabilities. Considering this, the investment of deploying DefensePro with SSL protections in several of their datacenters will help secure their networks, applications, and most of all, customer data."
